Cummings Issues Staff Report Calling for Urgent Reforms at TSA
Washington, D.C. (Sept. 25, 2018)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued a staff report detailing the Committee’s three-year investigation into security deficiencies and personnel management problems at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and offering key proposals for reforms to help ensure the safety of the American people.
“I launched this bipartisan, three-year investigation with our former Chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, and I have continued it with our current Chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy. I have pursued this investigation aggressively—regardless of who is in the White House—because the safety of the American people should not be a partisan issue. Based on the classified and unclassified documents we have obtained and the interviews we have conducted over the past three years, I believe urgent reforms are necessary to improve security operations, personnel management, and transparency at TSA. I do not know who will control Congress next year, but we must redouble our oversight efforts while also moving to implement concrete reforms,” said Ranking Member Cummings.
